We would like to see more communities be able to visit homes in their areas. We are re-launching Green Open Homes B&NES, setting up systems with a Bath focus. From this foundation, we can then support other communities in B&NES to run events in 2024 and 2025. For communities and local energy champions who are interested in helping make more events happen, please get in touch.
Our Partners & Sponsors
We have a strong partnership of local organisations contributing their time and resources to running this event.
Read what they have to say
“With energy prices so high, our event couldn’t come at a better time, and we urge residents and businesses to get involved, as home-openers, volunteers or sponsors. We hope to make this a regular event and expand its reach throughout B&NES and into the Western part of Wiltshire.”Pete CapenerBWCE
“Too many people will again face hard choices this winter with the cost-of-living crisis and seeing how other people are saving money is vital to our work to help tackle fuel poverty. We were a partner in the previous Open Homes events and are pleased to be involved in re-starting this event because we saw how it empowered residents to save energy, which in turn helps us meet our climate emergency commitments.”Sarah WarrenCouncillor – Bath and North East Somerset Liberal Democrats Group
“Having been a partner in the initial Open Homes, this year’s event represents a continuation of our groundbreaking work to help the residents of historic buildings improve their energy performance and sustainability, making homes livable for the future whilst retaining historic features and protecting the unique character of our World Heritage City.”Alex ShermanChief Executive of Bath Preservation Trust
“Transition Bath led the previous Open Homes events and are delighted to be involved again. The existing housing stock produces nearly 40% of the area’s carbon emissions, and the rise in energy bills has left most people thinking about energy efficiency. But we know it can be overwhelming, with differences between house types and conflicting advice. Green Open Homes B&NES will let visitors get their questions answered by people who are further ahead on the journey.”Philip HaileTrustee – Transition Bath
“We are thrilled to lend support and expertise to the Green Open Homes event. Our engineers are at the forefront of sustainable construction, and as a company we have a clear and ambitious net zero carbon target. Green Open Homes will help us support the community to respond to the energy and climate crisis.”Claire SmithPartner at Buro Happold
